The Kansas Children’s Discovery Center is kicking off the summer season with a new outdoor water exhibit.
The new Family Treasure Garden & Outdoor Water Exhibit opened Saturday. It was selected by the Association of Children’s Museums as one of three U.S. sites for its “Going Wild at Children’s Museums” projects last fall.
The Garden is an educational in-ground water exhibit with a natural wetland filtration system and waterfall at the top level.
Organizers at the Discovery Center say the Going Wild project was created to engage children with hands-on exploratory learning in nature.
The opening of the exhibit falls on the Center’s 2nd anniversary.
